I booked this room last minute, I was on a budget needed something near the San Diego area for one night. I am a simple person I don't expect much from a budget hotel but this place was horrible. The area surrounding the hotel is dirty, a couple of bums make themselves at home near the area. No biggie we just wanted to get inside the hotel, the person at the front desk was polite and quickly checked us in. The room was at the 5th floor, when we went inside it had a foul odor, unfortunately no AC to disguise the smell. The room was clean, but the room could use some maintenance, the doors were cracked the bathroom light was flickering. We took a breather outside, our view was the freeway and Jack in the Box. We were on our way down to SD so we didn't really care as long as we had somewhere clean to sleep after our night out...was I WRONG. We got back to the hotel around 12am, and around 2am-4am our neighbors were having a after hours hotel party. LOUD crazy party, the people in the room started arguing and fighting, I was too damn tired to complain and figured it will cool off but it didn't. This place is located near a Navy base I wonder if these guys were from the Navy. Check out is at 12:00pm I normally relax and check out until that time but this time, I got up at 8am packed our bags and left the room. When dropping off the key they asked how my stay was and I said, "Not good we didn't sleep the neighbors were too loud" They apologized and asked for me to complain next time BUT there will be NO next time. I paid $152.00 for this room, all I wanted was a clean room and a good night sleep instead I got anxiety and lack of sleep.
